Kinsbourne Common Hall, Harpenden

COVID-19 update

The hall has been out of use since lockdown in March.


As the current guidance is that parties are a high risk activity, the hall cannot be used for parties until social distancing is suspended.


Our policy is that, from 4 July 2020, the hall is available to regular hirers who have carried out a thorough risk assessment and are satisfied that they can operate their activity in the hall with an acceptably low level of risk of coronavirus infection. (The activity must also, naturally, be one that is not prohibited or discouraged under government guidance.)


We will also accept, on a temporary basis, new regular hires in slots that our previous regular hirers have not yet resumed using. This is on the understanding that the slot must be relinquished if the previous hirer wishes to resume. At least one month's notice will be given.


It is, as yet, unclear when scouts/cubs/beavers will resume. This will not be before September, but may potentially be longer. In the meantime, we will accept bookings on weekday evenings.


Anyone considering entering the hall for an activity carried on by one of our hirers should make their own judgement about whether it is safe to attend the activity. The organiser of that activity is responsible for determining what measures are practicable and appropriate in the context of the specific activity and you should refer to them to understand the measures they have put in place. Entry to the hall is only permitted on the basis that you understand and accept that Ninth Harpenden Scout Group has no liability for any infection that is alleged to have taken place at the hall.
